Join the Literacy & Learning Society

Get Started

Ensure that new schools will receive CoEd programs for many years to come.

Literacy & Learning Society (LLS) members make a commitment to contribute $1,200 or more to CoEd each year for the next five years so that new schools will receive CoEd programs for many years to come. Most members choose to fulfill their commitments through program sponsorships.

As a Literacy & Learning Society member, you will receive:
  • Letters and photos from the young people you help in Guatemala.
  • Invitations to exclusive events for LLS members.
  • Recognition for your support at the schools and in CoEd publications.

For questions or more information about the Literacy & Learning Society, please contact Abby Gaide at (513) 956-9006 or

We’re happy to give to Cooperative for Education through our Rotary Club’s involvement with the Guatemala Literacy Project, but we feel it’s important to make a personal gift as well. The connection we felt with the kids we met in Guatemala is strengthened every time we receive a letter or photograph from the students who are getting a better education because of the commitment we made.
